Mission Statement


Teach a skill, change a life!

Description

We are a non-profit jewelry design studio that works hand-in-hand with talented African crafters, shoe makers, jewelry designers and seamstresses to create unique, high quality and fashionable Africa-inspired products. We specialize in Handcrafted, Fair Trade, Eco Friendly products that support a great cause!

Our mission is to help provide educational sponsorship and entrepreneurship training for teens and adults in Uganda’s capitol city of Kampala, where we hold and maintain our Vocational Training Center. In our training center, we teach individuals about the craft of Tailoring/Sewing, Bead Making and Jewelry Design, Sandal Crafting, Computer Skills, Entrepreneurship, and more! In detail, the revenue generated by the ABOH products that you buy, directly sponsors students with scholarships to the Vocational Training Center, where they are trained in one or two skills at a time for a period of three months. There is no charge for this service or for their materials during their training. In addition to craft training, this training also includes entrepreneurship skills, computer skills, and small business ethic. Upon graduation, they are encouraged to use the facilities and materials provided to make their first batch of products. The graduates then market and sell their products locally. Our joy is to provide these individuals with the skills needed to be self-sufficient and in turn have a positive impact in their local community and economy.
